Driving to the beach of Metochi....accidentally!

We decide to drive to the very popular beach of Hiliadou this morning so we are on our way there….

I get some panoramic photos on the way while we are still on the mountains and I am anxious to see the progress made after our last visit there about 15 years back.

We reach the beach and I cannot believe what I see.
There are no hotels or studios as we have heard, but we are in the same beach we saw 15 years ago…. For some minutes I am confused. It must be the wrong beach……where are the hotels, restaurants and studios we have been reading about? After 15 years this is the beach we had seen back then. No progress at all!

I am not sure at all that it is Hiliadou, but I want to ask this time so I approach some locals where I am informed that this is the beach of Metochi and if we want to reach the other beach we need another 45 minutes drive.

So……the beach we for years thought was Hiliadou, was the beach of Metochi. Wow!...

Metochi by the way, is a very popular village in Evia for its cherries. 

Of course the beach is fine here too and the view is awesome but it not what friends or books have described it to us. 

So, off we drive to the other coast………….!
